Carries a glorious mission
Denies pure love
Follows God’s voice
He pledges to be a goatherd

Over the oceans
On the mountain
A fragile heart sobbing
Blasphemes God’s steal her love

Thanks for the Đồng Khởi Movement
Vietnamese lost freedom
Thanks for the Nam Kỳ Revolution
Justice flew away from Vietnam

Thanks for the Saigon’s fall
Vietnamese live in exile
Thanks for the Red Government
Vietnam becomes the poorest country

Thanks for the reeducation camps
Men understood oxen’s labors
Wives lost their husbands
Children lost their fathers

Thanks for the New Government
Vietnam was isolated from the world
Vietnam went back to the prehistoric age
Human labors replaced technology


Shame on Viet Communists
They sell Viet land to feed their greed
If folks cry out their split
Our folks are committed to death
Folks pretend to be deaf
Wise citizens accept silence
I reject my quiescence
I chastise their treason of roots
Because rage fills my soul
To see our folks in woe’s burden
Trường Sa’s big present
Red Bloc sells to Nation China
